A dead man leaves his money to his father and niece, but who is the dead man? A man's body lies on a narrow ledge in a remote Arizona canyon, but who is he? Is the old gold mine really a mine? Why was the girl murdered behind the mountain cabin? What's it like to be lost in a desert mountain range without food, water, or shelter? Finally, who are the mysterious riders, and what are they up to in the dead of night?
Join Art Parker, his daughters Heather Parker and Mary Ann Markham, and their best friend Jennifer Martin as they travel to southern Arizona to try to answer these questions and stumble upon the solution to several murders as well as other illegal activities. The Cochise County Sheriff's Department is not amused, but that's a normal reaction to this team of amateur sleuths.
About the Author
Because he had lived in southern Arizona for a total of nearly ten years, first while serving in the U.S. Army in the mid-1960s and later while working for a Government contractor and then a private corporation, John decided to set his Pima series of novels in an area he knew well, the mountains and deserts of Arizona. Later short stories and novels are set in other locales.
Now with the advantages of electronic publishing John has decided to make his books available in those formats.
